2018 Serraboella Cigliuti

Grapes Nebbiolo
Colour Red
Origin Italy, Piedmont
Village Barbaresco
ABV 15%
Vineyard Serraboella

A little tighter, more shy, with a darker fruit profile, cherry, damson, mocha and herb, lovely concentration. Fleshier and fuller in the mouth, the tannins are rich and full, layered with crushed cherries and plums, underbrush, herb and mocha. A touch firmer, yet also just that bit glossier in its approach, with delicious balance. Drinking range: 2025 - 2040 L&S (Oct 2021)

The 2018 Barbaresco Serraboella shows the mid-palate depth and pliancy that is typical of this site. At the same time, it is pretty closed down following its bottling about two months prior to this tasting. Succulent dark cherry, plum, spice, new leather and dried flowers develop in the glass, but only with great reluctance. This inward, brooding Barbaresco needs time. The only question is how much.

Sisters Claudia and Silvia Cigliuti took over the running of this vineyard from their father Renato. He was the first member of the family to begin bottling his own wine, back in 1964, roughly the same time as other pioneers in the region like Giacosa, but the family can trace its roots on this land back to the late eighteenth century.

Most of the vineyard and the winery is on the Serraboella hill, looking over Neive from the east, and it is the Barbaresco Serraboella which is the flagship wine of the estate. This hill, composed of calcareous marl and tufa soils, gives classic wines which combine the textural finesse of clay and the length and longevity of wines from limestone. The vineyards are tended by the family, by hand, with low yields to ensure full ripeness every year.
